(2-LP set) on December 18th -19th, 1986, Sun Ra and a 13-piece Arkestra took to the studio, recording the material for two full-length LPs: Reflections in Blue and it's follow up Hours After, in back to back sessions. Here Ra and a particularly inspired Arkestra featuring John Gilmore, Randall Murray and Tyrone Hill, careen crazily through a mix of radically imagined jazz standards like "Yesterdays", "Say It Isn't So" and "But Not for Me", and a handful of inspired Ra originals (i.e. "Reflections in Blue", "Hours After", "Dance of the Extra Terrestrians"). While Reflections in Blue was released on the Black Saint label soon after, Hours After was not released until 1989. The material for both LPs was recorded at Jingle Machine Studio, Milan, Italy. 180 gram vinyl in a gatefold LP.
